Red Clay Writing Project Saturday Morning Series, April 22, 2017
Reading and Writing History (Grades K-8)

Date: April 22, 2017

Instructor: Tanya Hudson, Teacher Consultant

Schedule: The workshop will take place from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m.

Location: UGA Gwinnett Campus, 2530 Sever Road, Lawrenceville, GA 30043

Cost: $45

Description: Many students struggle in history classes when teachers approach the subject as a cramming of facts, filling students with timeline entries devoid of context and passion. We can make history more personal and relevant by using historical fiction, research, narrative writing, and immersive simulations to enrich our social studies instruction.

Participants of this workshop will:
• Discuss how reading historical fiction can help students relate to social studies content
• Explore methods of incorporating research and writing in the social studies classroom
• Examine ways of planning and implementing immersive simulation activities
• Create an outline for a social studies unit related to a historical event or topic of choice that incorporates historical fiction, research, narrative writing, and/or simulation activities
